Los Angeles, CA
Charlet was born in Long Beach, California as Chihye Takahashi Chung. Her family moved ten times before the age of ten and finally settled down in Diamond Bar, CA where she now considers her hometown. As her name suggests, she is the daughter of a Japanese mother and a Korean father who were immigrants and both received a masters and doctorate degree from UCLA and Claremont Graduate School. She is fluent and literate in both Japanese and Korean because of her upbringing as well as her over 25 visits to both countries combined. She received a BA in communications and a minor in East Asian studies from the University of California, San Diego with the hopes of having a career as a news anchor in broadcast television.
It was, however, Charlet's memory of first being discovered on an airplane at 5 years old by an agent who was trying to convince her mother to sign her along with her passion to perform and impersonate that motivated her to pursue a career in Hollywood. Upon graduating college, she was signed immediately by a manager and booked her first role on CBS's Cold Case within 3 months of being signed.
Since then, she has exhibited her wide range of work from playing the young teen arch-nemesis, Candy on Disney's Shake It Up, to eventually landing adult roles on shows such as Netflix's Grace and Frankie and ABC Family's Mystery Girls. Her most noted accomplishments include competing against 7,000 actors for a spot in the DISNEY/ABC television group talent showcase also known as the ABC diversity showcase where she was chosen and got to perform in front of 500 industry professionals at the El Portal Theater in Hollywood, California.
Currently, she has made her mark in the voiceover world, most notably for the character of Seraph, in Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and as D.Va, a Korean pop-star in Blizzard Entertainment's Overwatch. She is currently working on a new game that is slated to be released in the fall of 2016.
When Charlet is not filling her days with acting, she loves to spend time and give back to her community through her local church and various charities in between every opportunity to travel with her family. She is passionate about stopping animal cruelty around the world and pledges to dedicate herself to organizations that focus on saving animals.
